CAS(E) This Sketch #249

Hi all! =) A new sketch is up on CAS(E) This Sketch! Here is this week's sketch.


Here is my card.


This is a fabulous retro sketch and I gave a bit of twist to fit the image and sentiment that I used.


The stamp that I used is called Chickadeer and it's from Stamping Bella. The image is stamped on PTI's Rustic White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size.


I dusted off my Christmas themed Japanese washi tape for the background. =) The sentiment comes with Chickadeer.

That's all for now. Don'r forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over on CAS(E) This Sketch! =)

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Snowman with A Chick on Top

Happy Black Friday, all! =) Hope you are all having fun with family and friends! Here is my card for this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge over on the Stamping Bella Blog.


This is an Inspiration Challenge week and here is this week's inspiration photo.


I have to confess that I had another challenge in my head when I made my card and got a little lucky on the colors that I used. Close enough? =)


The image that I used is called Snowman with A Chick on Top. They are colored with Copic markers on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock then fussy cut out. There is a matching die to go with this stamp if you are not a fan of fussy cutting.


The patterned paper is from Dear Lizzy Saturday 6x6 paper pad by American Crafts and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches' Holiday Cheer set.

That's all for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members and participants created for this week's challenge and see all the challenge details over on the Stamping Bella Blog! =)

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Week 3

Hello, all! =) Here is my card for this week's Leading Lady post for the Winnie & Walter Blog.


This week I decided to play with the Cover Model: Do You See What I See? Cutaway. I used cardstock in Winnie & Walter colors and used the negatives of the die cut for a colorful background. Once again, I used a cutout of the frame as my guide when I glue those little shapes with foam tape.


For a colorful background like this, a dark sentiment would stand out best, so I used one of the happy words from the In a Word: Happy Coordinating Cutaways and shimmery cardstock for the first part of the sentiment. Since stamping on the background would be challenging, I used my Dymo label maker to create the second half of the sentiment.

Again, this one took some time to make, but I found it therapeutical doing it while watching or listening to my favorite TV or podcasts. Hope you likey! =)

Have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!
